It seems someone has taken their old deodorant bottles and filled them with salt and chilli powder. The innovative person has even cut holes in the caps, just like a real condiment shaker.

South Africans, however, were not left convinced. One person hilariously remarked that DIY video's on the internet have lead people to take things too far.

While it remains unclear whether or not the innovative tech device has actually been manufactured, the young man has asked his followers what they think about the idea.

Heading online, LinkedIn member Anthony J James shares the short clip.

"Future smartphone idea - yes or no?" he captioned the post.

From the clip, it looks like users of the device will be able to see right through their hands while operating the phone. It also features a translucent charging port.

Check out some of the mixed reactions to the phone below:

Ken Soleyn said:

"Cool. I am looking forward to the day when no smart phone will be needed at all. Just project the UI in front of my eyes via an interface somehow connected to my brain. With that I will be able to navigate anywhere on earth, call anyone and see an image of them and have a conversation. I will also be able to access every book ever written as well as every movie ever made. I would also be able to make a virtual visit to anywhere on earth."

"Dumbest idea ever! How do you find it when you dropped it somewhere and forgot where?"

Hasara Liyanage said:

"Spending hours in the morning looking for the phone."

Vincent Kwok said:

"Not just yours, but your wife’s, your kids’ phone, and when you find them all, you have to spend an extra minute to tell which phone is who’s. Unless of course you have a phone cover for each phone, which would look pretty ugly like empty phone cases."

Palesa Lehasa said:

"ABSOLUTLEY YES, I love this idea."

Bradd Williams said:

"Does it do something other than just being clear? I had a clear phone in 1993. It was cool. You could see the inner parts. It was just a phone, though."

Thomas Alexander Kær Kønig said:

"This is just plain unfeasible. You'd have to make all internal components transparent too - battery, processor, camera (which by definition won't work if it can't catch light), you name it."
